Welcome to our blog!


We are three young women embarking on a cross Canada cycling trip! We will be starting May 5th from Victoria, B.C, making our way

East to St John’s, Newfoundland, spanning over >7000km. We are planning to stay mostly in campsites, but will indulge now and then in a roof over our heads (be it a hotel/motel/holiday inn, friends/family, or couchsurfing/warm showers). We will be carrying all our gear on our bikes, including tents and camping equipment.


This is by faaaar our biggest cycling adventure yet, and, after a LOT of planning and practice, we are so excited to get rolling!


Feel free to contact us with any questions or comments, and please check out our fundraising pages along the side bar!


Thank you!

Day 77: (July 20) Peterborough to Marmora KOA 72.2km

In the morning we met Julie's mom, Monique, for breakfast. This morning we joined up with Julie's friend Emma, who would be joining us for the next few days! We were excited to show someone what our trip was like on a daily basis. We cycled with Emma along the 7 until arriving at the Marmora KOA. It was a hot day, and traffic was busy, but there were only a few hills. Once at the campground we enjoyed a swim and some hotdogs (and veggie dogs!) by the fire.
